Power supply for the sensors is provided by an USB cable and for signal transfer a serial cable (RS232) is used.

  • Connect any sensor of the CustoSec sensor program (i.e. temperature sensors) to the RJ45 Port of the adapter (or 2 sensors when installing a 2-port adapter).

Configuration of the adapters

Configuration in ARANSEC/CustoSec is done by configuration of the sensors in the Serial Box - Assistant as described in the documentation of the respective sensor.
